The first two days were a little difficult as my body adjusted to no caffeine from sodas, but starting with day three that was no longer an issue. I did some minor exercise during the week, as well as some sit-ups and push-ups each evening. Regarding the food for week one; for the most part it was pretty good. There were definitely some items I knew I probably wouldn't like, but most items were good to very good.
One way that the Nutrisystem really helps you out and they make it very easy is labeling the food for you. Each item is labeled as Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner or Snack. It's so easy for me to just grab my breakfast, lunch and two snacks for work each day. Two items that come as part of the Turbo Takeoff portion Nutricrush Shakes and Bars you have to buy a la carte from Nutrisystem. They aren't available to you as part of your meal plan moving forward unless you want to pay separately for them.
Some items I really liked: Does it have at least 5 grams of protein? I also try to make sure my breakfast and snack choices contain 5 grams of protein.
This helps balance the carbohydrates, so the bar seems more satisfying and the energy lasts longer. Some bars I tested had 1 or 2 grams of protein, while others had 10 or more grams. I've got to warn you; not many bars meet this guideline. I like to calculate the percentage of calories from sugar because different brands of bars differ dramatically in size and calories.
Putting sugar into a percentage gives you a way to compare them fairly. How much total fat and saturated fat does it contain? You definitely want some fat in the bar, so that it has a more satisfying taste, texture, and helps slow digestion a bit. But you don't want too much fat, and you certainly don't want any saturated fat if you can help it.
I read labels for the bars I came across and tried to find some that followed my four keys to a better bar. I was able to find some bars with 3 or more grams of fiber, 5 or more grams of protein, lower amounts of fat, and no saturated fat.
That said, here are my better bar choices for journaling purposes, you'd generally count calories for a meal-replacement bar and calories for a cereal bar:. Clif bars score really well on protein and fiber content. One of Clif's lowest-sugar flavors is Cool Mint Chocolate: One bar 68 grams weight contains calories, 10 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber, 5 grams fat 1.

These bars, which contain whole grains, bran, and soy protein concentrate, score high in fiber and protein. One of the best-tasting flavors is Oatmeal Raisin Cookie: Luna bars score great for protein and sugar, but their fiber doesn't get to the 3-grams-or-more level.
One of the best tasting Luna flavors even my pre-teen girls love it is Nutz Over Chocolate: One bar 48 grams weight contains calories, 10 grams of protein, 2 grams of fiber, 4. Journal as 1 cup low-fat yogurt, sweetened.
